My wife and i discovered Chateau Musar in a Lebanese in London near Piccadily Circus. We both ordered lamb and our waiter recommended that we pair it with a Musar. That night we learned that it is an amazing pairing with lamb. Tonight we grilled lamb seasoned with rosemary and fresh chopped garlic. We decanted the Musar for about 2.5 hours before the lamb came off the grill. The wine was amazing. Definitely in a late stage but still lovely. The front palette leads with raisin and finishes with plum notes. Once again the Musar paired well with the lamb.

I'm not going to use "wine" terms here. I had my first taste of this wine at Thanksgiving 2007 and I have never reacted to a wine this way. Best wine I've tasted and I make it a point to taste some highly recommended and rated wines. If you can get your hands on a bottle, do it. You won't regret it.

    This wine is in a wonderful state of maturity with compelling savory, meaty, and herbal aromas and flavors. Apparently yields were very low in 1995 with the result that the wines show amazing concentration. This estate, founded by Gaston Hochar, is a mind-boggler and well worth a look if you love, especially if you love mature Bordeaux.


    Winemaker's Notes:

    1995 was a short harvest, reduced by about 30%, but apparently an excellent one for quality. A mature-looking red with a bricking rim. The nose is meaty and savoury, with a baked quality. It's quite volatile and very aromatic, with complex spicy elements. The volatility is evident on the palate, but its quite concentrated with firm tannins and a spicy, alcoholic finish. Plenty of complexity, and may well develop in interesting ways over the next few years. A big wine.
